Kasich Can't Break Away from Unknown Challenger

A new Quinnipiac poll in Ohio finds Gov. John Kasich (R) holds a narrow lead over Ed FitzGerald (D) in the race for governor, 43% to 38%.

Said pollster Peter Brown: "The race to become Ohio's next governor is a five-point game, little changed from the seven-point spread in Quinnipiac University's last survey in November. Also unchanged, however, is how relatively few Ohioans - less than three in ten - know enough about Democratic favorite Ed Fitzgerald to have an opinion about him. That is a double-edged sword for the challenger: It indicates he has not made much headway in the past three months, but it provides him an opportunity to make up ground among the vast number of voters who are unfamiliar with him."
